For the first time in 20 years, Gerry Hieter will drink a beer at the 2019 Great Canadian Beer Fest.
“I’ll happily share the millions of things about beer fest that live in my brain,” said Hieter, now 65. “We’ll work closely with Beer Week right up until the gate is open [at the 2019 event]. Then I’ll grab my glass.”
